lie. earlier this week, chrysler's parent company announced that it's in talks to increase operations throughout the entire world. now as bloomberg news reported chrysler referred to adding jeep production sites rather than shifting output from north america to china. translation, chrysler is so flushed with cash they are looking to expand operations to other countries including the world's largest customer. today chrysler announced 1100 new jobs at its jeep assembly plant in detroit, michigan. but wait a minute, mitt romney he didn't say anything about that. you see mitt romney would be talking about job creation then and that's something he says that barack obama doesn't know anything about. chrysler responded to this controversy. i want you to pay close attention to what a corporation said about what mitt romney said. first they start out saying, let's set the record straight. jeep has no intention of shifting production of its jeep models out of north america to china. it's simply reviewing the opportunities to return jeep output to china for the world's largest auto market. u.s.
is. when chrysler ceo marchionne says they're not moving jobs to china that is big town home town pamer news and when you as a candidate lie to the hometown crowd about the hometown news you cannot expect that lie to float. and it is not floating. the "columbus dispatch fact check" says, "oh, boy." cleveland plain dealer's er89 says "flailing in ohio romney rolls out jeep ploy." say wau want about mr. romney's overall relationship with the truth throughout this campaign. say he's prone to gaffes or misstatements, call them fibs, call them lies. now that he is finishing his campaign in ohio with a lie about ohio that ohio knows is a lie, you can just call this one a mistake. now it's time for "the last word with lawrence o'donnell." have a great night. >>> the good news for mitt romney tonight is the massive storm has made everyone forget about his secret tax returns. the bad news for mitt romney is the massive storm has made everyone forget about mitt romney. >> on the ground in the middle of the devastation, president obama will tour new jersey. >> the october surprise, bipartisa
. >> the facts, they speak for themselves. president obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy. taxpayers still stand to lose $25 billion from the president's politically managed bankruptcy. these companies, chrysler in particular, we know their story, are now choosing to expand manufacturing overseas. these are the facts. >> remember the president talked about romnesia? well, it's contagious. congressman ryan. congressman ryan's caught it. let me tell you the facts. congressman ryan voted with us. he voted in the congress with us. >> joining me now, msnbc's joy reid and robert reich, former clinton labor secretary, university of california at berkeley economics professor, and author of "beyond outrage." joy reid, do you know florida? has no one told jeb bush this thing about his brother's lack of popularity with the american public? >> poor jeb keeps trying. he tried it at the convention too. he just tries to slip george in there every so often. >> you can't blame a brother, though. >> he loves his brother. you know, he keeps trying to get him back on the stage, and republicans keep saying no,
. just to the point where chrysler is saying no! we're not doing -- you're actually slandering us here. >> stephanie: that's what i mean. is the maybe stream media going -- is the mainstream media -- blatant lies like that. chrysler had to say no. that's so blatant. he's in ohio and he says -- let's see. a news story about chrysler's plans to open a plant in china. he said the company's thinking of moving all production to china. he'll prevent such action by fighting for every job in america. that's not what the story said. in fact, it says they're planning to open a chinese factory where it will make a popular line, jeep for chinese consumers. chrysler isn't planning on shipping production away. it will add factories in china to keep up with the nation's growing demand for automobiles. >> romney is sending jobs over to china from illinois the day before the election. >> but the other thing is that he didn't just say this. he put out -- his campaign put out an ad saying it. so it wasn't just some slip of the
of the -- the ceos of chrysler and gm had to come out and say you're lie being us and you're going to hurt our sales with your lies. he's not really keeping up with business there, but i have to tell you also, earlier this week he got subsumed by the sandy coverage as it should have, but i put out a story with another videotape in which mitt romney talking to a fund-raiser earlier this year says, you know, there's a better business environment in china than the united states. well, why is that? it's because they have no worker protections, no environmental -- >> they have no human rights, david. >> and low wages. so is he saying he wants to bring us back to that point? like to the days of cal coolidge as joy suggests? >> david, yes. >> there's a lot going on that doesn't compute and when it does compute it's rather scary. >> there's something called the moonlight magnolia theory of economics. the south practices it right now. when you strip away unions and you can lower wages, businesses are more profitable. that's why wall street -- you see the stock market tick up when companies lay people off bec
of moving all production to china. i will fight for every good job in america. >> okay. so chrysler corporation then issues this statement. jeep has no intention of shifting production of its jeep models out of north america to china. it's simply reviewing the opportunities to return jeep output to china for the world's largest auto market. a careful and unbiassed reading of the bloomberg take would have saved unnecessary fantasies. so bloomberg had this piece about moving jobs to china. they weren't saying that. they were saying maybe they could expand and do some business in china. >> it's actually a success sorry. >> you have this giant corporation who is uninhibited about referring to what romney is saying about unnecessary fantasies. >> i've got to tell you i'm not polly an na here. but the way that mitt romney has run this campaign, has been disgusting. no regard for the facts. no regard for the truth. willing to say anything just as you were alluding to with john sununu, willing to say anything that serves his purpose at the moment and relying on the fact that he's not going
, was in favor of a managed bankruptcy for g.m. and chrysler. and so he's got to somehow get voters to look past that, that he would be a supportive president of union workers in this state. as you mentioned, governor romney is down in florida today. we are expected after this bus tour to head down there as well. but right now the polls are looking in the president's favor. the latest cnn poll has the president up 50-46. there's still some work to be done here but we can tell you that the folks who are showing up for these republican events are very energized, they are very enthused about their ticket. and now as a matter of seeing, alex, who's got the better ground game. democrats or republicans. we'll know in ten days. >> we will certainly indeed. thank you so much ron mott. safe travels on the bus tour. >>> next up we turn to nbc's kristin welker who's in new hampshire with the the president. hello to you, kristin. before we get to the president's campaign event there, is hurricane sandy affecting the white house plans at all? >> reporter: absolutely. it is affecting the white house plans. go
: not at all. we just talked to congressman gary peters representing the very district where this chrysler jeep plant is located in toledo and the romney campaign is certainly implying that as a result of the bailout, chrysler's plans are to move the jeep plant to china. gary peters has said it is totally untrue along with a lot of other people. can romney get away with that? >> this has turned into the 11th-hour ad wars but the most interesting has been what is playing out in ohio right now. it's almost not even the bailout it is the notion of job outsourcing to china. >> bill: but if you say that they are planning on moving a plant to china and the head of the company comes out and says you are lying -- >> that's really a problem for them. and the obama has calculated that not just one, but two separate ads that they are doing to counter that. that their calculation has been that romney's play will backfire in ohio concentrated in northeastern ohio -- this is one out of eight jobs and their calculation is that people employed directly or indirectly by the industry f
. without it, chrysler and begin would have gone out of business and domestic industry supply chain would have collapsed taking ford with them. instead, u.s. auto makers are achieving huge gains in the fuel efficiency of their cars and trucks. who said that? >> mitt romney. >> stephanie: no. they go on to say the bailouts began under president george bush. mitt romney continued to oppose them. they're paying attention in ohio. they also say in the depths of the great recession no such investment was forthcoming. a high-powered businessman and the son of a detroit auto ceo who plays up his michigan roots might be expected to acknowledge that but no.
